On Friday I should I have posted a blog entry entitled “Eleven Years Ago Today…”
Instead, today I title this “Eleven Years Ago This Past Friday, I Married Troy!!”
Yes – you heard me right – Troy and I have been married 11 years as of October 19, 2007. We didn’t know each other long when we married (only 7 months) but we knew we were gonna make it!!
This past year has been a very exciting, trying and wonderful year. Troy has proven his love this year to me like no other. He has listened to me through every emotion this adoption has brought on, (those of you out there in the same shoes – you KNOW what I mean!!), he has been an amazing help to my parents (and me) in helping them move to a smaller place, closer to us, as my dad is not well, he mowed their grass every other weekend this past summer and moved stuff galore, and as you know by my last post he was a trooper for me when I was in the hospital. I am lucky to have him.
In adoption news, I finally called my local rep on Friday and we had a very nice conversation about the goings on with our agency. We still have a wait in front of us, but good things come to those who wait, right? I just know you are reading this giving me back a resounding “RIGHT”!! I also talked with our coordinator in the St. Louis office and we had a good conversation as well. We feel at this point that we are in the best position we can be in right now.
Here’s to anniversaries and adoption news!! (Hopefully more adoption news before the next anniversary!!)
Finally, thanks for all the well wishes left for me. I am finally feeling on the mend and hope to head back to work this week for a couple of half days to see if I can make the drive and hang out at work for a few hours without being exhausted, and then back to the grind next week.
